It strikes me as the wrong approach.  In many (most?) cases
there will not be a human staring at the console to see whatever
flashes by, plus there is often too much to fit on a screen and/or
memorize anyway.

The real solution is to log the info somewhere.  There is the
serial terminal with lots of scrollback approach, or use a printer,
or a tip/cu line from another machine.

Logging the info on the machine itself depends on what you want to
trust during a panic.  :-(
